Prizmah Conference 2023
January 8, 2023 @ 8:00 am - January 10, 2023 @ 5:00 pm
We are excited to be exhibiting at the Prizmah Conference where we will be introducing the screen-free KIBO robot to educators at Jewish Day Schools and yeshivas! Please join us where you can play and code with KIBO in our booth and where you can learn more about the Limudei Code Esh STEAM Program.
This early learning education initiative is from a generous grant from the David Lear Sulman Computing, Science, and Engineering Fund. The program starts your young learners on their journey into coding and robotics by bringing Jewish holidays to life!
The initiative consists of:
– Limudei Code-Esh Curriculum – This free curriculum integrates coding, robotics and computational thinking with Judaic studies, along with the on-screen ScratchJr and physical robot kit KIBO. The curriculum was developed by Professor Marina Bers of Tufts University and three Boston-area Jewish educators from Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform Day Schools. The curriculum has been tested in grades K-3, and flexes for use in preK-5.
– ScratchJr – This free app introduces coding skills! With ScratchJr, young children can program their own interactive stories and games.
– KIBO Robot Kit – Children build, program, and decorate robots with age-appropriate tangible manipulatives, using no screens or keyboards.
About the Prizmah Conference
The Prizmah Conference is the gathering place of the Jewish day school and yeshiva network. Join 1,200 professional and lay leaders from the Prizmah network of more than 300 North American Jewish day schools and yeshivas in Denver, Colorado for three days of high-quality professional learning and intentional relationship-building.
The theme of the Prizmah Conference is Creative Spirit. Together, we will celebrate the spirit of creativity that we bring to our work every day, and explore the creative competencies that we can apply to impact students, schools, and communities.
